Operation Christmas Child

Shopping/Packing Party/Other Event

Operation Christmas Child Packing Party - Saturday, Nov. 15 from 11am to 1:30pm-meeting at Elm Road Dollar Tree.
Join the fun as we will be packing shoe boxes/ Any donations you would like to bring for our shoe boxes or money for shipping is always greatly appreciated.  Bring your friends!

Let’s see how many shoe boxes we can fill this year!

Ways you can get involved:

1. Donate shoe box(es), wrapped or unwrapped, and/or items, such as: school supplies, pocket tissues, combs, brushes, hair ties, small purses, small tool kits (these can be given in place of a box for older boys), chapstick, small stuffed animals, balls, card games, small games, dolls, t-shirts, socks, underwear, deodorant, wash clothes, soap (UNSCENTED please), hard candy (NO chocolates). Look for green bin near kitchen for your donations.

2. Monetary donations of cash or check (made out to the church) can be left in the office or if marked, in the offering basket. The approximate cost to fill & ship one box is $20, but any donation is greatly appreciated.

3. Fill a box(es) and bring to the church by Sunday, Nov. 23, 2014.   If you want to see where your box will be shipped, pay for your shipping online by going to: and click on the link: How to Pack a Shoe Box. Then under #4 click “Follow your Box Donation.”

4. Sign up to help the week of November 17-24th when our doors are open to the community to come in and drop off their boxes. Sign-up sheets will be going around soon.

5. Pray. The success of this project depends upon many prayers. God has surely blessed over 100 million kids with boxes since OCC began in 1993.

A Note from a pastor in Belize:  "Since the shoe box distribution at our church, Iglesia Evangelico has grown.  We have expanded our church program from just Sunday to now Tuesdays and Thursdays so that the kids can be involved.  there has been an increase of participation and an expansion of ministry because of the shoe boxes.  Thank you, Operation Christmas Child."
The "Greatest Journey" Student in Ecuador:  "I listened during Lesson 4 about how Jesus died on the cross because He loves me.  I made the decision to accept Him into my heart, and I know that God cares for me as a Father.  Although my father abandoned me, God will never leave me."
